Latin I & II

Tutor:  Diane Regualos

Grades:

High School (and possibly bright/motivated 7th and 8th graders)

Course Description:

We will be covering one year of high school Latin.  This will include learning the 1st-3rd Declensions (nouns and adjectives), how to conjugate 1st & 2nd Conjugation verbs in all 6 tenses in both the active and passive voices, how to write and translate sentences of multiple clauses, learning about Roman culture, history, and mythology, and translating progressively more difficult translations based on The Aeneid.  I plan to have the students take the Latin I Test of the Latin National Exam in March.

About the Tutor: 

I graduated from Grove City College in Pennsylvania with a double major in History and Social Science Secondary Education.  I taught for 14 years at Christian Leadership Academy, a classical Christian school now located in Bloomfield Hills, MI.  While at CLA, I taught Algebra I & II, Geometry, Logic, Western Civilization, and Latin (3-12th grade).  Because I love young people, I have stayed involved at my old school planning and leading their senior trips to Europe.

I love teaching and being able to teach from a Christian Worldview.  I have always taken seriously the warning in James 3:1:  “Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.”  I know this is specifically about teaching God’s word, but I think it can be applied to all teaching.  I have always been very aware of the overwhelming responsibility I have to God and to my students’ parents for how I model my relationship with Christ to my students.  I am happy to provide my resume and/or references.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

Additional information: 

I live in Richland with my husband, Rey.  We attend Gracespring Bible Church.  There I am involved on the Drama team and teach the 4 and 5 year olds during the MOPS program.
